Are you interested in studying gene expression in an upcoming project, but you’re not sure where to begin? Join us in December for a live, 3-part webinar series on qPCR technology, arrays and data analysis. This popular webinar guides you from Sample to Insight, beginning with the steps of a qPCR experiment, from the underlying technology to targeted qPCR arrays and concluding with data interpretation. When you combine qPCR technology with expertly compiled gene lists in the form of PCR arrays, you gain a powerful tool for profiling the activity of biologically related gene networks.
What will this webinar series cover?
Part 1: Introduction to Real-Time PCR (Q-PCR/qPCR/qrt-PCR)
Dec 2, 9:30 am EST, 2:30 pm GMT
In this webinar, we will introduce the concepts of real-time PCR and how to conduct a real-time PCR assay. You will receive an overview of real-time PCR chemistries, protocols, quantification methods, real-time PCR applications and factors that will help support your research success.
Part 2: Advanced Real-Time PCR Array Technology – Coding & Noncoding RNA Expression Analysis
Dec 9, 9:30 am EST, 2:30 pm GMT
During this webinar, we will discuss our simple and accurate real-time PCR system for relevant biological pathway- and disease-focused mRNA and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) expression profiling. You will learn about the stringent performance built into the technology to ensure its sensitivity, specificity, reproducibility and reliability. Featured application examples will provide insight on how to use this technology in your research.
Part 3: PCR Array Data Analysis Tutorial
Dec 16, 9:30 am EST, 2:30 pm GMT
With a live demonstration using actual PCR array data, this webinar presents an easy-to-use and complimentary web-based data analysis tool to calculate fold-differences in gene expression from your raw real-time PCR threshold cycles. Learn how you can look at your results in different formats, including heat maps, scatter and volcano plots, clustergrams and more. The data analysis tool also suggests further steps to expand on and improve your research.
By signing up for just one of the sessions, you’re automatically registered for all three and have access to the webinar recordings and slides. Each webinar includes a Q&A session following the presentation.
